Inspectors and Appraisers Love Us!

It keeps happening. As you may know, we frequently do Rhino Shelf factory installations in our regions – many for new home construction for both builders and homeowners.  So we are often in new subdivisions installing our innovative garage storage shelving systems. If a county building inspector is also in the subdivision and hasn't already seen our system, he or she will invariably come over to see what its all about.  We love it when they do.  They, without exception, always rave about our garage shelves.  They really do, and usually go so far as to track down the superintendent of the project to tell them that we definitely pass muster.   If we can brag a little, our design...

Garage Organization Ideas Using Hooks and Milk Crates

Here's an under-shelf storage idea that a customer sent in.  She has hung milk crates from hooks screwed into the shelf 2x4s.  She indicated she uses her crates to organize and contain small items, and still have them accessible.  We have recreated her idea in our "studio garage" and produced the picture above.  (We swiped one of our grandson's ball collection to fill ours up.)  The milk crates we used are heavy duty plastic and are 17" long x 14" wide x 11" high.  Crates this size or plus/minus an inch or two, are widely available in big box or container stores, and many places on-line.  Shipping's kind of tough for on-line ordering, however, since we couldn't find any of...

When we designed the RhinoMini Shelf, we had the standard milk crate in mind when we chose the shelf dimensions.  Shown here is a 4' RhinoMini with four milk crates stacked on it. Here are the dimensions of the 4-ft Mini Shelf section: The standard milk crate is about 18 5/8" long, 12 7/8" wide and 11 inches high.  Even if you've "snugged" your Mini directly underneath another Rhino Shelf (the Rhino Combo!), you will have at least 12" inches clearance between the shelf and the top bracket, and you can fit three wide on each shelf section.  If you have at least 22" clearance above the shelf, you can fit the milk crates two high. Milk crates are available...
